I have created a graphic (rectangle) using the drawing tool, and then converted into a shape file using "convert graphics into features" tool

I would like to convert this shapefile into point shapeshape.

How to convert line or polygone shapefile into point shapefile?

I searched the internet and I got XTool Pro as a solution but its expensive to buy, is there any alternative way to do this operation?
